When Maurina asked me in twitter whether I would be going to Empire that coming Sunday, I was puzzled because… what’s there on Sunday? Later I was told that Chef Wan was coming to Brunei and… WAS I NOT INVITED??????!!!!!!!!!
So I kiasu-ly logged into my email account and checked, maybe I missed out the mail or something and phew… I GOT INVITED TOO!
The venue was located in Empire’s Grand Hall.. my first time there.
Lucky for me, albeit 10 minutes late (got kind of lost and couldn’t get a parking spot hence illegal park.. but at a spot where it doesn’t effect people).. Maurina and Marul were there already and we had the whole table to ourselves.
Sitting with me, Marul, Maurina, Mauzira and Debbie.
Go read Debbie’s blog post on this event! Her blog is my new found favorite =)
Marul’s camera in HAPPY mode! How cute!
Featured recipes for the day.
Rano, who was late.. ate a piece of boxing chicken (while everyone was super hungry) and left the bone on the plate. And later left for a KFC event.
The Moroccan spice that everyone forgot to tapao-ed.
Actually, the bowl was passed table to table to have a smell on the spice, but.. the bowl just never went to other table after it reached ours… Hehehehe.
The 3 dishes.. Apple cake with butterscotch dressing, Spanish style seafood risotto and Moroccan Chicken Tajine with prunes and olives.
The apple cake that we all inda ampit…. but I tasted those butterscotch dressing, nyaman!
You know I’m not a sweet tooth but this is different!
The best chicken I’ve ever tasted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So tender, moist and full of flavour!
Prunes and olives… are just not the kind of ingredients I’ll put into my cooking but the chicken had this "sweetness” (not overpowering sugar sweet) in it. So so so good!
I’m still mad that I didn’t get to try this. I should try this recipe out myself! Hummpfffff!
Okay, abrupt end because I wanna sleep. kthxbai
